Ok so last week I wrote about this website called Zeus eJuice which is a company that a friend of mine and her husband run. They make this e-liquid for those electronic cigarettes in awesome flavors. Cause when you smoke, you don’t want to have 2 choices, regular or menthol, you want some really neat flavors.
Here is the original post: Vape with Zeus E-Juice for Ego E-Cigarette
I quit smoking in 1996, but a few years ago I bought a pack of cigarettes because even though I didn’t want to start smoking again, I kinda missed it. Luckily I couldn’t keep doing it because it was hard to inhale the smoke, I don’t mean mentally, it was physically difficult. I don’t know if it was because I wasn’t used to it. It didn’t hurt, I just couldn’t breathe it in as easily as I was able to when I did smoke. I smoked one here and there, but luckily I didn’t pick the habit back up.
After I blogged about Zeus E-Juice, I really started to think about the health benefits of “vaping” and I wrote another post about that. I had looked up videos on Vaping on YouTube and I have been researching websites to find out if vaping is a good way to lose weight because I am over 100lbs overweight, half of which is from when I quit smoking. I have found so many testimonies from people claiming that they have lost weight after vaping with the sweet flavors, they no longer desire to go out and buy sweet treats which in turn has helped them lose weight. It especially helps those who are trying to quit smoking to lose weight instead of gaining it when they quit like I did.
I didn’t want to rush into buying anything, but I figured I have the money now, and I know I want to at least try it and see if it works, so I bought one. If this doesn’t work then I can send the kit to someone who wants to quit smoking. But if it does work, then I will keep using it to help me lose all of this weight. I am really sick of being fat.
So here is the e-cigarette that I bought online. I went to eBay and this came up. It was only $32.75 and it is being shipped to me for free. I believe it’s coming from Singapore, so that was surprising that it was free shipping. It has a battery indicator so you know whether it needs to be charged or not. It is said to have a 3-5 day charge, but I don’t plan on vaping it all the time, only when I get a sweet tooth. According to the description, I am getting 2 e-cigarettes. These things don’t last long so one of them is a backup. I am also getting 5 cartridges that are Marlboro flavor, which I will probably dump into the sink and fill with the e-liquid I bought from Zeus e-Juice. I don’t want the nicotine, I just want the flavor. Here are the flavors I am getting.
I also ordered Toasted Marshmallow, but I guess they couldn’t fit that into the image. But everything is ready to go and I look forward to tasting these flavors. None of these flavors have any nicotine so there is no risk of habit. The good part of vaping is that there isn’t any tar, tobacco and the thousands of chemicals that you have in your cigarettes. You aren’t getting smoke into your lungs, you are getting vapor, hence the term vaping.
Weight gain is a concern for all who quit smoking and that was what happened to me when I did quit smoking. I gained 50lbs within the first 2 or 3 months. The reason is because I was eating sunflower seeds all day long. I figured the hand to mouth motion would help me, but I didn’t consider that the sunflower seeds were fattening. They are fine in moderation, but if you are eating nothing but sunflower seeds all day long, you’re gonna gain weight. I was also rewarding myself with ice cream and we were eating fast food every day. You can’t reward yourself for quitting a bad habit because you are only giving yourself another bad habit.
I struggled with those 50lbs for the first few years, but then gave up and have gained another 50lbs and haven’t been able to lose it. Oh I have tried many times. I’ve taken diet pills, I have bought a belt that you put around your stomach and zip up and I have ridden my bicycle 22 miles a day. I even went to the gym in 2005, but that didn’t work out too well. The reason all of these things didn’t work out for me is because I was still eating junk. The only way weight loss can happen is if you are changing your eating habits and exercising. You can lose weight with diet change or with exercising, but it’s really difficult unless you are doing both at the same time.
So, my plan of attack is to start vaping when I get a sweet tooth or when I get hungry. Cut out the coffee and vape the caramel cappuccino flavor instead. Replace my drinks with water and eat healthier foods. I also plan to start riding my bicycle again after I have lost enough weight to where I can ride my bike again. I have gone over the weight limit lol.
So naturally I will keep this blog updated on my progress. I will post again when I get the ecigarette and post my findings on the tastes too.
Update: Please read my post called “Vaping and Weight Loss” for my latest discovery. Hint, it doesn’t work…
